North of the Arctic Circle
on the Arctic Ocean, Barrow is the northernmost settlement on the continent, but there are several other factors that make this remote Arctic Alaskan
community unique. Balancing sophisticated modernity with wise tradition, Barrow is by far the most intensely studied scientific site in the American Arctic and an interesting sojourn for one's Alaskan holiday.
The extreme geography means Barrow is subject to 24-hour daylight in the summer months and a magnet for keen explorers. The blanket of tundra that stretches south for hundreds of miles is a splendid hunting ground for locals and outlying villages. Travellers can observe snowy owls and polar bears on a tundra tour or learn the legends of the Iñupiat whalers and purchase authentic arts and crafts at the Iñupiat Heritage Centre.
For a complete Alaska experience, consider adding Denali National Park
to your vacation itinerary. Home to North America’s tallest peak, Alaska’s iconic wildlife, and over 6 million acres of wilderness, it is truly a destination not to miss.
